Reality Is Starting to Creep Into the Billionaire Oasis of Davos

Vijay Prashad

At this time of year, about 2,000 private jets fly into Zurich airport and to various smaller Swiss airports (including the Dübendorf military airbase). Hundreds of helicopter flights move from Zurich to Davos, where the hotel rooms go for as high as US$10,000 a night during the World Economic Forum (WEF). The WEF, which began in 1971, opened this Tuesday and runs through to the end of the week. The theme is Globalization 4.0, which refers—it seems—to the need to tackle the high-tech economy and to create a new architecture for a crumbling world system.

Mexico is in North America.

An economist calculated that over the course of its rule In India, the British Empire extracted some 43 trillion in wealth or some 300 billion per year. Colonialism did not end with the British Empire. It continues to those day with the Corporations these Billionaires represent.

They are thieves. They made their fortune by stealing from others. Having stolen all they can , they then send their minions out to proclaim Socialism as theft.

First thing we must do is create a new economic system based on transparency . Visibility is another word for truth. All financial transactions must be open to the light of public scrutiny.
Nothing changes inappropriate behaviour faster than the light of public scrutiny .

A famous master once said …”The truth will set you free.”
Monied interests will hate this idea.People hide things that they are ashamed of…that’s why they hide the money in offshore accounts .

When the SHTF for these people they can’t claim they weren’t warned. This is from one of their own 4.5 years ago, it seems they didn’t pay attention.

Sorry I need to add that the 43 trillion was just the wealth extracted from India.
